The Church Universal
The Church universal is the gathering of all those people who have put their faith in Jesus, the Son of God, the promised Messiah of the Old Testament, the God-man who has come to save us from ourselves and from our sin to life in Him forever. He has not only saved us from ourselves, but to His people, namely the Church. The Church is not bound by denominational or cultural lines, but by the blood of Jesus who has rescued us to life in God and liberated us for freedom in Him.
A Local Church
